Turning in Unwanted Drugs

Digg Favicon Email Favicon Facebook Favicon LinkedIn Favicon Image
Westport police officers Linda Vena (c) and Sharon Russo (r) welcome Westporter Bertha Mathis today at Westport Town Hall as she dropped off her expired and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter drugs during the annual Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) collection event. This program is conducted by local police departments throughout the country to give people a safe way to dispose of medications they no longer want or need and to help prevent these drugs from being stolen, abused, or dumped into local water supplies. In 2010, Americans turned in 121 tons of unwanted medications to more than 3,000 local police departments. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for

Forgot about this today.  You can also turn in old medications to pharmacies, who have processes in place to dispose of them properly.  DO NOT flush them down toilets, as this contaminates water, as many drugs are not removed from the water during wastewater treatment.
